    I am new (2 months) to prospect research. I have spent years in other aspects development. Even though Marianne's presentation was above my limited experience, it was interesting and inspired me to learn more. I'm always impressed with the knowledge and expertise of the group.

    The seminar/holiday party was great. You can't really beat an evening of knowledge, food, and meeting like-mined professionals. Personally, I have been working toward the Fundraising Analytic path, so Marianne was the perfect presenter. Thanks!
